Trucks, trailers, tents, ice machines, giant deep friers, and miles of wire are set up at this location. It is organized chaos.
The Homestead RC Raceway crew needs to completely disassemble the entire track and drivers stand and move the entire set up inside the Speedway. Then the track needs to be reassembled to accomodate the space provided for the rc races that are held in conjunction with the Speedway events.
The logistics can be a little overwhelming at times, but somehow it gets done. With as many as 50,000 people present on the IRL race day, entry, exit, security, spectator control, and running a good race become much more important than a typical race.
This is one of the neatest events you can attend. The atmosphere is something special. The competition will be great. You will race in front of thousands of enthusiastic spectators who really like extreme experiences. You will not be disappointed if you attend.
